With the mainstream media watering down the meaning of veganism with its dietary, fitness and weight-loss focus, is the vegan movement losing its core ethics? Find out more about how we can work together as vegans and activists to promote inclusivity, learn from other movements, and lead by example to promote compassion to ALL we encounter. Learn how to become a more effective activist and make these much-needed changes. This talk was recorded at Living Green Festival:  http://www.lgf.org.au/...
